To Start, What are Cells?

Cells are essential to survival; they make up the foundation for every living organism. They are able to form any tissue or organ in the body, which is unique from other cells. In addition, they can self-renew and replicate constantly. Their plasticity acts as an imperative differentiator from other types of cells as their ability to create tissue for an organ different than their origination is essential to their use in regenerative medicine.

Why Cells?

Cell therapy at the Lung Institute in FL has proven to benefit individuals with chronic lung disease by improving the function of patients’ lungs. Cells are not limited to treating lung disease as cells are capable of forming any differentiated cell, so they can actually develop into any organ or tissue in the body. Since cells self-renew and divide indefinitely, they are ideal to promote the healing of organs in order to improve organ function. As new tissue is created by the cells, organs are strengthened and the effects of organ damage are minimized.

What Cells Are Used?

The Lung Institute in FL offers cellular therapy with autologous cells. The cells used come directly from an adult patient’s body by the same patient. This decreases the chances of rejection and eliminates any possible controversy about cellular therapy.

The Lung Institute provides cellular therapy: Blood-Derived Therapy. During cellular therapy, the cells target the damaged tissue or organ in order to reinforce function and improve lives.

How It Works?

Depending on the recommended therapy, the cells are extracted from the patient’s body either through bone marrow or blood. At this point, the extracted cells are isolated by a professional and are quickly given back to the individual intravenously allowing patients to inhale the cells. Now, the cells can begin to promote the healing of lung tissue, so patients can breathe easier and bring their life within reach.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary.
